Property description

We invite you to enjoy our family's home and make it your own for a wonderful Sonoma wine country getaway.

Located in the heart of Sonoma Valley wine country, Glen Ellen is a charming town with two magical parks, incredible restaurants, and only minutes from many world-class wineries.

Our home, lovingly called The Williams Retreat, is the perfect place for you to experience everything that California wine country has to offer.

Our home is only a 5 minute walk to the Glen Ellen Market where you can stock up on everything you'll need for a winery picnic or a meal cooked in our newly renovated kitchen. Also in walking distance are many top, five-star, local restaurants. We're only a 15 minute drive to downtown Sonoma and 30 minutes to downtown Napa. Less than an hour to San Francisco and the Sonoma Coast.

Our gorgeous and light-filled two-story home sleeps 8 people comfortably in four bedrooms -- 1 king bed, 2 queen beds and 2 twin beds.

The living room has a vaulted ceiling and is a great place for everyone to relax after long days of exploring the region or to enjoy a movie on our 50' HDTV.

Our recently renovated kitchen is open, spacious and fully stocked! It's perfect for every meal which you can enjoy in our large dining room, our outdoor picnic table or even at the kitchen bar!

We have a propane BBQ on our brand new deck with a table ready for your picnic and a lounge area for you to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening!

Start your day with a cup of coffee or enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day on the front porch on our comfortable redwood chairs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Julie and Angelo are recent newlyweds that have lived in the SF Bay Area for more than 7 years. Very early on they fell in love with Glen Ellen and knew that they wanted to own a little piece of that paradise. After a lot of hard work and lots of planing, their dream became a reality. Angelo works as a Firefighter in the Bay Area and Julie is a Personal Life Coach for women aspiring to attain happiness in all aspects of their life. Both are transplants to the area -- Julie born and raised in Louisiana and Angelo born in Brazil and grew up in Maryland. Their paths first crossed at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD and later in San Francisco.

Why the Owner Chose Glen Ellen, CA, USA:
We love Glen Ellen. Its the perfect place for us and we think it will be for you too. Its a quiet, little town but close to everything you need. You can enjoy the outdoors at Jack London State Park, taste wines at some of the best wineries in the region, eat at some of the best restaurants in the country and drive to San Francisco as a day trip. We bought this home because we want to share it with our friends -- and YOU!!!
